Accredited Quality Contractor

The Accredited Quality Contractor program was launched in 1993. It is a program which publicly recognizes and honors those construction firms which have documented their commitment in four key areas of corporate responsibility:

  • Quality 
  • Safety (STEP Gold, Platinum or Diamond Level Required) 
  • Employee Benefits Training 
  • Community Relations and Diversity

Accreditation by Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc. (ABC) is not an endorsement or promotion of any of the services an accredited contractor provides, nor does it represent a guarantee by ABC that any particular level of work will be provided. It is a reflection of ABC’s evaluation and determination that the contractor as a whole meets a standard of business practices that have been adopted for accreditation purposes by an independent committee comprised solely of ABC members.

Accreditations are based on findings from member companies at particular points in time, therefore the quality of services offered by an accredited contractor could change without ABC’s knowledge between annual reaccreditations. The information on this website should be used as a guide in making choices about which contractor will best meet the client’s needs and not as ABC’s recommendation to utilize any particular contractor’s services. Owners and others who recognize this accreditation are responsible for obtaining the additional information necessary to make informed decisions about their choice of contractors. ABC therefore expressly does not assume any liability for the quality of services provided by an accredited contractor to any client.
